ALL ABOARD! It's time for Vacation Bible School to leave “Rocky Railway” station at Fort Knox.
Over 30 cars from the Fort Knox community arrived in front of Cavalry Chapel July 19 as children took part in a kickoff rally for the week-long event, some celebrating inside their parents’ cars while others stood next to them.
A team of about 20 volunteers led the children in prayer, songs, dances and encouragement during the one-hour event. Parents were given a sling bag full of goodies and information for each child that included a Bible story book, train engineer bandana and DVD full of lessons they can follow at home each day Monday through Wednesday. Participants can also register in a private Facebook group located HERE.
The culminating event will take place at Pritchard Place Chapel Thursday, where children will celebrate the end of Vacation Bible School with a reverse parade. Parents are encouraged to drive through the circle drive in front of the chapel starting at 6 p.m. Chapel staff will be on hand to deliver another bag full of related items, resources and a completion certificate.
Leaders say anybody who would like to get involved now, or even after Vacation Bible School ends, can call 502-624-8556 for sling bags and encouragement.
